Fiddle solo, Eleanor Kane - piano, Decca 12062. Two tunes from O'Neill's. O'Neill himself met up with Johnny, Eleanor, and other members of Pat Roche's Orchestra, at the Irish Village of the World's Fair in Chicago, 1934. O'Neill asked for a hornpipe from piper Joe Shannon, who duly obliged; O'Neill then presented Joe with a copy of one of his books, inscribed "To Joe Shannon – The Youngest Left Handed Player Since Patsy Touhey".
"Slievenamon" is an Anglicization of Sliabh na mBan, the Mountain of Women, which is the title of a song in Irish, and a popular air with musicians. Winston "Scotty" Fitzgerald, Cape Breton fiddler, recorded it as Slievman's Hornpipe. The Dublin Hornpipe is also called the Cuckoo Hornpipe.
Johnny made two LPs much later in the 1970s, one with flute player Seamus Cooley (brother of famous box player Joe C), and another with the above-mentioned piper Joe Shannon, the Noonday Feast. Johnny can also be heard on Irish Traditional Music from Chicago, playing more duets with Joe and a couple solos, still backed up by Eleanor Neary (nee Kane).
